    It has been a long while since I did any dieting or working out to any consistent extent and...


    Can someone explain this to me.. is it my age? My general lack of discipline on my diet? Before if I cut down on my eating and cleaned it up like i have been for the past month i'd be cutting down a little bit.

    Now it's actually doing absolutely nothing..


    Is it age? what the fuck

    don't post your "cutting" diet and exercise plan or anything.

    I have no plan or cutting diet


    I workout about 3 days a week, eat a lot less than I did.. dont eat mcdonalds or any of that anymore


    180 pounds and.. before I ate like shit, mcdonalds, bk.. etc..


    Then for a while now i've cleaned up the diet, been eating fruit, cooking chicken breasts AND working out..

    Still 180


    And like I was sayin i did this same shit like 5 years back and.. it was easy, after about 5 or so months I started to notice some change.. not now though


    sorry

    probably should have put more thought into this and then maybe I wouldnt even have needed to be a bother

    I think if you're just getting back into the swing of things to make yourself a fitday or dailyburn account. Log EVERYTHING you eat for at least a few consecutive days...it will really give you a feel for what you're actually eating. After total number of calories, macronutrient ratios are the next most important. Read the nutrition sticky for info on those.

    You should also google "bmr calculator" and figure out what you should be eating to maintain or lose weight.

    Maybe your age is playing a factor in your difficulty now...but with all the tools and info available, it is certainly a factor you can easily overcome with a little knowledge.

    if you don't know your calories, macros, etc. you have no way of predicting your results
